They treat me as an employee, without any benefits.

Route Sales Owner (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I have been working at Flowers Foods

ProsMoney can be good. Working without a supervisor watching over me(When they are not out to get you.) Flexible work hours.

ConsNo benefits. 24/7 on call. Poor communication from sales management. Complicated pay checks(Too many unexplained charges/changes.) Sales management started to really try and dictate our schedules in 2011.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate directly to distributors and not through sales managers. Stop micromanaging distributors.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
